Plantar fasciitis and the use of recovery boots

Plantar fasciitis and how our recovery boots can relieve pain

Foot pain is a widespread condition that can have various causes. A common source of discomfort is inflammation of the tendon plate under the sole of the foot, medically known as plantar fasciitis. Athletes and runners in particular are often affected by this painful condition, as they put a lot of strain on the foot tendon. The pain can be considerable and affect quality of life. In this article, we will take a closer look at plantar fasciitis and explain how our beyondRED® AIR Recovery Boots can help to alleviate symptoms.

The causes in detail

The plantar fascia extends from the heel bone to the toes and plays an important role in stabilizing the foot during movement. It serves as a natural shock absorber that distributes the load on the arch of the foot. During walking, the tendon plate is stretched to support the arch of the foot. Minor injuries can occur, particularly at the attachment of the tendon below the heel, due to overloading, which can cause irritation and inflammation. Various factors that stress and irritate the tendon can contribute to this overload.

What promotes overloading of the plantar fascia?

There are several factors that can contribute to overloading or incorrect loading of the plantar fascia, including:

  • Foot malpositions such as bowed, flat or hollow feet.
  • Shortened calf muscles or Achilles tendon, as these keep the plantar fascia under permanent tension.
  • Uncomfortable shoes, especially those with hard heels, as well as running shoes with insufficient cushioning and running on hard surfaces.
  • Excess weight, which can exert additional pressure on the tendon plate.

How can our recovery boots help with plantar fasciitis?

The beyondRED® AIR Recovery Boots provide a targeted pressure massage that promotes blood circulation and can reduce inflammation in the feet. This can help to relieve pain and speed up recovery.

How widespread is plantar fasciitis?

Up to 10 in 100 people develop plantar fasciitis in the course of their lives, with people between the ages of 45 and 65 being particularly affected. Runners and athletes develop plantar fasciitis more frequently and at a younger age compared to other age groups.

Expert opinion: Kamil Albrecht, intensive care nurse & passionate athlete

"In the case of plantar fasciitis, I initially recommend a 3 to 4-day rest phase. Afterwards, light stretching exercises and the use of our beyondRED® AIR Recovery Boots can help to alleviate pain symptoms," says Kamil Albrecht.
